Canon RF 50mm f1.2 L USM Lens
The ultimate 50mm lens
RF 50mm F1.2L USM delivers a new kind of optical of performance in full-frame photography. Outstanding clarity and sharpness means you’ll see noticeably more detail, even right at the edges of the frame.
- New RF lens mount specifically designed for Canon's EOS R mirrorless CSC
- Super bright standard lens
- Fast and precise optical performance
- Legendary L-series image quality
- Built for everyday professional use
The new RF mount has been built on the strengths of the existing EF mount and is the result of detailed research by Canon engineers, who have designed an impressive optical system with a flange back distance of 20mm and a wide 54mm diameter lens mount - allowing for even greater freedom when designing lenses. The new mount’s 12-pin connection enables enhanced communication and power transmission between the lens and camera body, further enhancing lens design options, and resulting in higher image quality and enhanced usability.
A great lens for...
The lens’s 50mm focal length has a similar perspective to that of the human eye, and a super-wide f/1.2 aperture that allows for extremely shallow depth of field – ideal for emphasising pin-sharp features like eyes against a soft, out-of-focus background.
With its fast-maximum aperture and ability to focus exceptionally quickly, the RF 50mm F1.2L USM is the perfect street photography lens, offering new levels of definition when shooting in available light.
Printing a photograph that’s been captured with a lens like the RF 50mm F1.2L USM is pure joy. Levels of detail are incredible, enabling fine-art photographers to produce ever-more impressive works for exhibition.
The widest of wide apertures
The f/1.2 maximum aperture of the RF 50mm F1.2L USM is the widest available in the Canon EOS line-up. It gives both photographers and filmmakers the ability to shoot with extremely shallow depth of field – a great way to emphasise a subject against a complicated background.
Super sensitive in low light
The ability to work with such wide apertures lets photographers use fast shutter speeds in low-light conditions, which can freeze both subject movement and camera shake. The RF 50mm F1.2L USM is a great tool for capturing the atmosphere of any moment using only available light.
A ring-type USM autofocus system, more usually found in Canon’s super telephoto lenses, moves the large glass elements found in the RF 50mm F1.2L USM with ease. Sharp focus is found swiftly and accurately, and objects can be tracked and followed as they move around the frame.
Robust and responsive – designed for professionals
The RF 50mm F1.2L USM is a member of the Canon L-Series range and is sealed against dust and moisture. A customisable Lens Control Ring provides direct access to camera settings, offering a manual feel with heightened control.
